the plot targeted the cafeteria and library in an effort to inflict maximum casualties. the two allegedly planned to throw pipe bombs from an elevated position and then shoot people as they fled. the complaint also said farook and marquez plotted a freeway shooting in 2012. the pair chose a stretch of state route 91 in riverside, california, where there were no exits to increase the number of targets. the alleged plan was for farook to throw bombs on the freeway to disable vehicles and stop traffic and then move among the vehicles and shoot into them. marquez would position himself on a nearby hillside so he could also shoot into vehicles and then target responding law enforcement officers. marquez is also charged with defrauding u.s. immigration services. investigators say he was paid to participate in a sham marriage with a member of farook's extended family so she could obtain legal status here in this country. scott, if marquez is convicted

4:06 am
had virtually no assets. a second hedge fund, msmb health care, also allegedly deceived investors, and the s.e.c. says shkreli then used retrophin, a pharmaceutical company he started and took public, to pay off the mounting losses in his funds. >> he abused that power, and used the public company's assets to pay off his own personal debts. >> reporter: the charges do not include his actions at turing pharmaceuticals, where in september, shkreli brashly raised the price of daraprim, a drug that fights a rare parasitic infection, from $13.50 a pill, to $750. >> i'm a capitalist. i'm trying to create a big drug company, a profitable drug company. >> reporter: as he became a symbol of drug industry greed, shkreli spent $2 million to buy the only copy of an album by the rap group wu-tang clan. we didn't seize the wu-tang clan album, the fbi joked in a tweet.

maybe it was karma that has two cuban-americans debating immigration reform in the presidential campaign. ted cruz and marco rubio are battling to become the alternative to donald trump, and major garrett is on the campaign. >> reporter: in republican circles, the word "amnesty" is a weapon. ted cruz unleashed it against marco rubio at tuesday's debate. >> there was a battle over amnesty, and some chose, like senator rubio, to stand with barack obama and chuck schumer and support a massive amnesty plan. >> reporter: that's a reference to the 2013 immigration reform bill rubio helped draft. it ultimately failed, but the bill would have granted legal status to the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in america. cruz said today that's the definition of amnesty. >> i oppose amnesty. i oppose citizenship. i oppose legalization for illegal aliens. i always have. and i always will.
4:11 am
his position in the past on legalization. >> reporter: rubio says cruz is forgetting the facts. cruz offered an amendment to that bill that would have provided green cards and work permits to undocumented immigrants, but deny them citizenship. >> he said at the time, and he repeated to multiple media outlets for months, that he supported legalizing people who were here illegally. >> reporter: in the crucial early state of iowa, a recent poll found 54% of gop voters wanted to deport the immigrants. iowan joel kurtinis supports cruz. >> when people hear the word "amnesty" that's an immediate yes or no for a whole lot of people. >> reporter: is that definable, amnesty? >> when you talk about allowing them to remain or turning a blind eye or winking to that, that's amnesty. >> reporter: rubio is more vulnerable on this issue than cruz because the 2013 bill also provided a path to citizenship. scott, alabama senator jeff sessions, who has guided donald trump's immigration policy said today rubio backed amnesty and

>> major garrett reporting, major, thank you. donald trump's proposal to temporarily ban muslims entering the u.s. and the attack in san bernardino, have many of america's five million muslims defending their faith. we sat down with five muslim millennials, all born and raised right here in the united states. college student r.j. khalif. army lieutenant shahn khan. nursing student sameya omarkheil. college student taqwa brookins, and journalist noor tagouri. >> donald trump's rhetoric didn't even hit me hard until last week. i had my absolute best childhood friend, best childhood friend, since i was six years old. she lived across the street. i saw her mother as a mother. and they're white christians, and her mom on facebook posted this super hateful post about muslims.
4:13 am
broke down in tears. like, i -- it was so hard for me to see. and i wrote her this long letter like, "you know us. my mom -- like, you guys know each other. i just went to your wedding last year. like i'm -- we're the muslim family that you know and you know we're not like that." >> what do you think people misunderstand about the values of islam? >> i think they believe too much that religion places an emphasis on violence. >> the koran was written in arabic, which is a deeply metaphorical language, where one word has hundreds of meanings. so if you want to define it in a violent sense, you're going to be able to defin it in a violent sense, the same way if you want to define in a peaceful sense, which 1.5 billion do, you'll be able to do so. >> but there are no verses in the koran that allow killing of innocent people under no circumstances. >> terrorism in your view is outlawed? >> it's outlawed. it's the last thing any muslim should be doing. >> when you hear of an attack like the one in paris, like the
4:14 am
have to get up and go to work or go to school the next day, what's going through your mind? >> i remember after the attacks had happened, i was-- i was terrified because i knew that we would get the backlash for what had happened to all those innocent people. >> have any of you been confronted by somebody on the street? anybody have words with you? >> yeah. it was the monday after the paris attacks had happened, and i went to school. i was walking, and a man that was leaning against a parking meter, i was walking past him, and he stuck out his leg and he tripped me right in front of, you know, everybody. and i fell on to the floor. and then he threw down his cigarette, and he started screaming in my ear, like on the right side. he was just like, "go back to where you came from." >> he didn't mean long island? [ laughter ] >> that's what i thought he meant, you know. that's where i'm from. i've never felt hate like that before, so it was the first time for me. >> lieutenant, when you decided to join the army, was there a lot of conversation in the family about that?
4:15 am
military was like, you know, are you going to go and kill your own people? this is crazy. what are you doing?" that's when i did my own research and i found out there's plenty of muslims serving in the military. there's religious tolerance. there's respect. >> i wonder how it strikes your ear when you hear isis in particular, claiming that it's doing everything that it's doing in the name of all muslims. >> i don't understand how logically does it make sense to say that, you know, isis represents all muslims and is fighting for all muslims when they're killing the very people who they claim they represent. >> there's nothing islamic about isis. islam, it comes from the root word salam, three arabic letters that literally translates to peace. isis goes against the very tenets of it. >> to see more of this eye-opening discussion, go to you can also find us, of course, on facebook.
4:16 am
carter said today that americans will be seeing more buildup of u.s. forces in the fight against isis. carter's interview in iraq today with charlie d'agata was his first since the secretary acknowledged using a personal e- mail account to conduct official business, which is against federal rules. >> what i did, that i shouldn't have been doing until a few months ago, was occasionally use my iphone to send administrative messages, no classified information, and backed up as records. i have to hold myself to absolutely strict standards in terms of cyber security, and doing things that are appropriate. i didn't in this case. it's a mistake. and it's entirely my own. >> reporter: we've just returned from syria. we spoke to commanders there. and they said they don't need
4:17 am
we need heavy artillery, we need armored vehicles. we need antitank weapons to match the firepower against isis. is that under discussion? >> yes. we've acknowledged that we're doing that, and we're doing that because they're effective fighters, and that's exact the kind of partner we're looking for. >> reporter: they suggested to us there may even be the introduction of more forces. >> absolutely. president obama wants us to accelerate the defeat of isil. so he is open to-- and i've made it clear to my commanders-- i want to get this done both in iraq and syria. >> reporter: americans might be concerned when they hear about more equipment, more involvement, more troops. >> they are going to hear about us doing more because we need to defeat isil and we need to do it quickly. so we need to enable capable and motivated local forces -- that's our strategic approach. have them with our active help. >> reporter: are you winning or is it containment? >> we'll win. i don't have any question about
4:18 am
and that's what i'm here for. >> reporter: a big part of the problem is getting baghdad on board, scott. the secretary of defense failed to get the iraqi government to accept more u.s. help. it doesn't play well at home that america is doing their bidding for them. >> charlie d'agata with the news-making interview tonight. charlie, thank you. a simple test can detect an elusive and deadly cancer among women. nasa discovers celestial light sabers. and new "star wars" movie is awakening olay regenerist renews from within, plumping surface cells for a dramatic transformation without the need for fillers your concert tee might show your age... your skin never will.

4:21 am
it's estimated more than 14,000 women in the u.s. will die this year from ovarian cancer, a disease that often goes undiscovered. but dr. jon lapook tells us a new test is showing promise. >> reporter: more than 21,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, usually too late to be cured. that's because early symptoms are either absent or vague. for the first time, a large study suggests there may be a way to successfully screen women for this disease and save lives. more than 200,000 women in great britain were followed for 11 years and doctors used a new strategy for screening. women were first given a series
4:22 am
if the ca125 levels trended upward suspiciously, women were then given a pelvic ultrasound. this resulted in a 15% lower chance of dying from ovarian cancer. no previous strategy has been effective. this is encouraging, but the researchers caution these women will need to be followed for about another three years before it's clear whether this new method actually works. but, scott, given that right now there's really been no effective way of screening for such a deadly cancer, this is promising. >> jon lapook, thank you, doctor.
